It would seem you are done discussing and have decided to go back to baiting.

go figure
Let's see multiple hundreds of other posters and no mention of racism.

Every post that you can fire off when the nurse at the psych ward looks away is about how racist mma fans are.

1+1= You're an idiot.

I don't think I know.

I was on Sherdog when that got out and people were all "Vera should wear a snitches get stitches t-shirt" or "Jones is a NARC" and what not.

A lot of people smoke weed and I think that turned them off on Jones, then beat up Shogun and kicked him in the knee and headbutted him and then he tried to poke Rampage's eyes out, then he dropped Machida on his face and the whole "Go get some fans" thing came out and then of course he got the DUI.

Bendo however is extremely cocky and arrogant and far more worse than Jones in that aspect and he doesn't get an ounce of hate that Jones does.

And will you please shut the hell up? Honest to God you try and turn everything into a race debate, it has nothing to do with prejudice. I'm a huge fan of Jon Jones but I can't ******* stand Ben Henderson.

Maybe because they're both a bit tall for their weight class and use their reach to their advantage. They're also athletic and strong and have the perfect body type for their respective weight divisions.

Then, there are the religious connections & the family oriented focus they both share, etc.

Bensons body language completely contradicts the words coming out of his mouth, his mannerisms display what seems like a cocky attitude. Its his swagger if you will.

Personally I just don't care for the guy cause he carries around a belt he never earned. I hope Frankie gets the trilogy fight and the judges can at least get it right 1/3 cause they haven't got it right yet.

Man I am sick of people saying Benson didn't earn that belt. THEY WERE CLOSE FIGHTS. They could have gone either way on both occasions.

As for the thread, I haven't heard anyone compare Bendo and Bones. Don't see an issue with Bendo at all. Think he has an awesome personality and I'm a huge fan of the fact that he doesn't drink or smoke. And he likes comic books.

Thanks for the explanations everyone, I understand now, within all perspectives too!

I still like Bendo, just not against most of the top LW fighters lol.
